Tromso, Norway: winter incentives in the spotlight

Dog sledding below the northern lights, a taste of Arctic cuisine or a champagne cruise between the snow-clad peaks of the Lyngen Alps are just some of the incentives on offer in the winter season in Tromso, Norway.

Spotting the Northern Lights: Tromso is surrounded by picturesque islands, fantastic fjords and dramatic mountain peaks. This Arctic city is located in the middle of the northern lights belt, with some of the highest levels of northern lights activity on earth. This natural phenomenon can be observed from September to April, depending on the weather conditions and solar activity. 

Northern Light tours: If the Aurora Borealis is the main reason for coming to Tromso, opt for a tour with a dedicated guide. Groups can spend time outdoors in a location where there is a great chance of seeing the northern lights, go on a more active northern lights hunt in the wider Tromsø region, or combine the search with an activity like dog sledding, reindeer sledding, snowmobiling or snowshoeing. 

Extreme incentives: For teams in search of a tougher challenge, options include a 'Ski By Boat’ adventure in the Lyngen Alps. Ski or snowshoe up one or more peaks or ski through powder snow all the way down to sea level. 

Luxury in the wilderness
Stay in the wilderness in snow hotels, Sami tepees or tents on an adventure challenge of a lifetime. Modes of transport include horseback or driving your own pack of huskies. Smaller groups can enjoy beautiful Arctic scenery and the aurora borealis from the wood burning hot tub on the deck of Vulkana, a spa-boat with full hammam and sauna. 

Whale safari: From November until January, groups can choose from scenic whale watching by rib or join a cruise in a modern yacht to hunt for whales, dolphins and orcas.
